It has been a while, hasn’t it.
A whole week.
I was having paint withdrawals.
I’m better now, got a couple of pieces set out on the drop cloth all set for tomorrow morning.
I think this is an office piece known as a “credenza”. In fact my boss has a similar looking one in his office.
It’s solid wood and very nice….. just a little plain looking.
I went back into my old picture files and believe it or not I purchased this piece at the Nashville Flea Market in April of 2012.
It’s been taking up space in my workshop.
What happens is that I buy furniture to paint and I just keep piling it in, on, and around other pieces….. so whatever is the easiest to get to is what I paint next.
That tells you I am getting low on furniture.
I decided on a latex paint so I primed first with Glidden Grey Gripper.
I painted a china hutch called “Sunny” in a bright cheery yellow and I used the same paint for this makeover but added a little white to lighten it up a bit.
You guys know I’m always mixing things together.
Have to keep things interesting.
I spray painted the original hardware white but after looking at it against the yellow I decided……no.
I pulled out a can of Metallic Rust-Oleum in Black and also searched for different hardware in my junk stash.
The different hardware and the black metallic paint really pop.
The original hardware was just too plain.
I also did a little light distressing.
All dressed up now
Not drab office furniture anymore.
Perfect for a flat screen tv….foyer catch-all…..dresser…..you name it!
